Transitional Living in Illinois

Transitional Living

After you finish your inpatient or residential drug treatment program, transitional living can prove extremely beneficial as the last step in your path to complete sobriety and recovery for the long term.

Today, transitional living facilities are designed to promote well-being, stability, and safety for persons who are in transition from an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation center but who are not yet ready to start living on their own completely.

However there are many approaches to this form of rehab; The intention will be to help you reintegrate into your life successfully once you are done with rehab and detox.

To this end, transitional living will provide you with the support you need to start repairing any damaged relationships with loved ones, friends, and family. It may also assist you with career training and placement and ensure that you develop and stick to clearer, more realistic recovery plans after rehabilitation.

Understanding Transitional Living

Transitional living homes or facilities operate in the form of group-oriented housing where you need to adhere to curfews and policies that are 100% alcohol and drug free.

Participants therefore may also be required to attend scheduled group and individual counseling and therapy sessions. In turn, you will get a nice place to live as you continue your rehab, complete courses to help you find employment, and develop essential life and coping skills.

This type of rehabilitation is also focused on preventing relapse but it may offer a whole slew of other services, such as GED assistance, life skills courses, and job counseling. By living in such setting, therefore, you will enjoy many benefits.

Who Needs Transitional Living?

Transitional living works ideally for anyone who is early in drug and alcohol recovery or who has just checked out of a rehabilitation facility. At this stage, your life may feel extremely uncertain particularly because abstinence can be a significant change in your life. Because of this, you might may have anxiety about the future and feel that you may relapse.

Additionally, your living atmosphere may complicate the matter further. For example, you may still be uncertain about where you should live after completing rehabilitation - especially if your family is not an option. Similarly, you may discover that you have no sober or reliable friends and family members you can turn to for accommodation.

When this is the case, you will find that transitional living may offer the most ideal solution.

Benefits Of Transitional Living

The majority of transitional living facilities have a lot to offer you. For instance, they are geared to provide the accountability and structure that is essential in helping you maintain your sobriety and finally making the change back into society.

Some of the benefits that come with living at such a home include:

  • Accountability
  • Assistance with completing a course
  • Development of essential life skills to teach you new patterns of behavior and thinking
  • Emotional support
  • Assistance with finding a new job
  • Support for any co-occurring issue

In fact, transitional living will often require you to complete some household tasks, take part in group counseling sessions, and be a responsible and productive member of society.

As one makes the transition out of treatment - whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis - you might discover that you respond better to the accountability that is imposed on you by the transitional living home, than you would to the demands, pleas, and requests from members of your family or friends.

Duration Of Transitional Living

The duration of stay at most transitional living facilities varies from 6 to 18 months, or perhaps longer. The home might also range in terms of size and offerings from small facilities with 15 to 20 recovering individuals to larger homes that can house up to 40 or so participants.

At the home, you will very likely receive 2 meals every day, as well as many of the same amenities you would typically find in your own home - such as shared recreational facilities and laundry services and/or centers.

The goal of this type of treatment is to provide you with the supportive and nurturing environment where you can learn how to start living free of all alcohol and drugs, as well as any other intoxicating substance you might be tempted to start using.

How Transitional Living Works

Drug and alcohol abuse and alcoholism may severely impact your well-being, happiness, and overall health and wellness. Due to your addiction, you are highly likely to lose your home, finances, career, or even push away your close friends and members of your family.

Because of this, if you decide to adjust back to your normal life, you may encounter various challenges - particularly if you are without an informal or formal support group or safety net. Because of this, anything can trigger you and cause you to start abusing drugs and alcohol again.

While recovering from drugs and alcohol and substance abuse, therefore, it is ideal that you build and maintain an abstinent and highly independent life. This is where transitional living comes in - to reduce the risk/opportunity for relapse and (in doing so) ensure your successful recovery in the long term.

Although looking for rehab for addiction is the important first step you need to take towards a life that is healthy and sober, relapse rates are quite high. This means that it may not actually be enough to spend a month or two at a rehab facility for you to successfully get a grip on abstinence and stay the course. This is because inpatient rehab centers are quite arduous and different for some persons.

Since the environment is safe and controlled, it is not likely that you will encounter any distracting elements, triggers, or temptations to begin abusing alcohol and drugs. In addition, everyone in the center will support your sobriety. Hence, all that will be required of you is to stay focused and keep striving to get clean.

Also, you may not understand that stressful factors like attempting to regain your old job or find a new one, dealing with family and friends - especially those you had fallen out with when you were still using - as well as managing your depleting finances may all result in a relapse.

Hence, after you leave the rehabilitation and rehabilitation facility, you may find it useful to check into a transitional living home. In doing so, you will continue receiving rehabilitation informally and working towards conquering your substance abuse problem.

Finally, transitional living is a smart approach to addiction recovery. It is focused on achievement, opportunity, and hope. If you - or a loved one - have been considering this form of care, you should definitely take the time to find the right one - particularly one that will meet and exceed your expectations and help you complete your drug and alcohol addiction treatment. If you do this, you should finally be able to adjust to a life free of alcohol and drugs.
